JBSA-Randolph celebrates Women’s History Month

By Alex Salinas Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph Public Affairs

Three events remain in what is a busy Women's History Month campaign at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph.

Along with the several health and fitness related events that jump-started March, the 20-person Randolph Women's History Month committee is sponsoring a women's shelter supply drive through Tuesday.

The shelter drive supports families in the Visitation House, a San Antonio shelter for single women with children under age 12. Laundry detergent, children's toothbrushes and liquid antibacterial hand soap are a few items requested for donation.

The committee is also coordinating a panel of various professional women to speak March 20 at Steele High School.

The speaker panel will celebrate women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

To conclude Women's History Month, the committee is hosting a JBSA-wide breakfast 8-10 a.m. March 29 at the Parr Club, featuring Brig. Gen. Theresa Carter, JBSA and 502nd Air Base Wing commander, as the guest speaker for the marquee event.

During the breakfast, winners for the Federal Women's Award will be announced, which is an annual recognition honoring the advancement of women in the workplace and community.

For those interested in nominating a woman who is on active duty, a civilian or spouse, it's not too late.

Submissions, which must cover leadership and job performance, significant self-improvement, base or community involvement, and efforts made to further the cause of women in the workplace or elsewhere should be emailed to and are due 5 p.m. Tuesday on an Air Force Form 1206.

The theme for this year's campaign is "Women Inspiring Innovation Through Imagination."
